  1. White, Pinpoint Flashing Issue with XBox Series S


    Hi all, I've scoured the internet looking for info on this issue but haven't found anyone else who has encountered it.

    Yesterday I bought an XBox Series S, and when I play Borderlands 3 on the XBox, the screen is constantly interrupted by these bright white flashes. The flashes don't appear to be the same issue that other Series X users have encountered; i.e. it's not the screen flickering - the flashes themselves seem to originate from random points on the screen, and are just big flashes of white, some bigger than others.

    So far I've tried the following: - turning on and off all the Video settings; 4K, HDR, etc. - turning on and off Y4:4:2 encoding (hopefully I got that name right) - checking for firmware/software updates - none required of either the xbox or TV - changing HDMI cables

    I'm now at a loss; none of the above fixed the issue. I have a feeling that it's got something to do with an incompatibility between my TV and the Series S; I have a TCL P6 Series 4K UHD TV bought in late 2018.

    My hunch is between an older model TV and the Series S which can't quite manage 4K (1440p is the maximum right?) it's causing this issue.

    Just want to check if there are any more suggestions other than forking out for a new TV :'(

    Edit: Further to the above, this issue is only encountered when playing BL3 - no such issue watching Netflix or on the menu screen of the XBox. BL3 is the only game I have presently.

    Xbox series x (Box Only)

    Many people try to scam others when it comes to new console releases. People are so desperate to buy the new console they don't look at what they are actually buying. For example I seen a PS5 go for $6700 on ebay the other day. That is crazy Also seen
    a listing for a xbox series console ( s or x was never stated in the listing) which was the original xbox. Another listing was for a Xbox Series X white edition with a 512gb drive. Obviously this was just the Series S someone was trying to sell as a Series

    Xbox One light constantly flashing on console after turning off

    Flashing White Light just started 45 minutes ago. If it is just a download, why can't I watch TV?

    Will Xbox respond to this issue?
